Jalsa Kitchen Opens at Diablo Plaza in San Ramon

Diablo Plaza, San Ramon

A bit late posting about this but the Indian restaurant Jalsa Kitchen opened late last year at Diablo Plaza in San Ramon. Check out their menu here. I stopped by recently and had their samosa chaat with garbanzo, mint, tamarind & yogurt which was delicious! If you’re in the area definitely drop by to try this place out.

From their website:

Jalsa Kitchen is an attempt by the well known Jalsa Catering & Events team to bring the devoured Jalsa food within the reach of food lovers in various cities in San Francisco Bay area. Our goal is to introduce the global community to the classic and modern aspects of the India food in a casual atmosphere. We are going to be adamant about sourcing high quality seasonal produce from the local farms. Quality and taste would be our core focus and we will leave the rest for our customers to decide.


MIXT Soft Opens at City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon

City Center Bishop Ranch, San Ramon

The fast casual restaurant MIXT, featuring salads, grain bowls, plates and sandwiches in a open, light-filled environment, recently soft opened at City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon. There will be a grand opening celebration with giveaways this Saturday, April 27th. Check out the San Ramon menu here.

From their website:

Each signature salad is meticulously crafted—developed after months of testing flavor profiles and preparation methods. We spend weeks perfecting our signature salads, not just because we want them to taste great and highlight the season’s best flavors but because a salad is more than just a bunch of ingredients tossed together. It should be a well-balanced nutrient-rich meal that brings a smile to your face.
